Healthy Eats in Washington, D.C.

I have lived in D.C. for about 3 years now. My hubby and I are always on the lookout for new healthy places to eat here. We are fortunate that D.C. has quite a few healthy takeout and dine in options. So if you are in the D.C. area be sure check out one of the many salad bars like Chop't and Sweetgreen. These restaurants have tons of healthy options like Kale and Quinoa. Also, most of the restaurants below are chains so you can find them in several areas (around D.C.). My favorite Chop't salad is the Harvest Cobb.  Most of the sites below have calorie info online.

I think a key to staying healthy is doing research about your food (e.g., nutrition info). So if you have not done so already take sometime to see what healthy options there are in you city. That way when you need a meal in a hurry you know exactly where to go.  Check out the list below for healthy eats in D.C

What are your go to healthy take out spots in your city ?
 I have a trip to Atlanta in a few weeks, so if you know healthy places there please share!

Brown rice is really the best for losing weight. Even fitness instructors suggests this.
